Your one-stop shop for all you need to know about eco-friendly hand sanitisers & disinfectants
Vibrant health is a balance of care inside and out. Promoting better hygiene standards may help reduce your risk of infectious diseases caused by the spread of harmful germs. But you might be surprised to learn that not all sanitisers are created equal. From its kill rate to its environmental impact, to its suitability from birth and around pets (never mind long-term side effects on our skin and lungs too) we considered it all. The result? Our Super Antibacterial Sanitising Water with Hypochlorous and expertly formulated range of hygiene waters for babies and kids. They're the best alcohol-free and natural sanitiser for hands, accessories and surfaces; not just for you, but for your whole family. Safe around baby and pets too.
Think about this...
What does it kill?
Bacteria? Viruses? Spores?
All of the above? And has your sanitiser been tested by the Biocidal Products Regulation for iron-clad
proof that it works and is safe?
How fast does it work?
60 seconds? Two minutes, five maybe 10? Its kill rate determines just how long you have to wait around before knowing your hands or surfaces are properly disinfected.
What's its environmental impact?
Do the ingredients in your sanitiser pollute the air? Do they kill the good microbes along with the bad? Are they drying on skin? And do they contaminate our water and oceans?
Thankfully, our Super Antibacterial Sanitising Water and range of hygiene water for babies and kids eliminate bacteria, viruses and spores on contact, in seconds; making them one of the fastest acting disinfectants you can get. They are tested and compliant with the Biocidal Products Regulation for guaranteed safety and the promise that they work. Made from Hypchlorous, a natural disinfectant that our immune systems make inside of us, our sprays work in concert with our bodies and environment making them the most non-toxic hand, accessories and surface sanitisers for the whole family. Think of them like water, only they're powerfully antimicrobial.
Fresh. Delicately Active. Powerfully antimicrobial.
Consider it your protecting gentle giant for the whole family.
HYPOCHLOUS HOCI • Gentle yet powerful, Hypochlorous (HOCl) is made in our bodies by our immune system.
Highly specialised killer immune cells, known as neutrophils, patrol our blood fighting bacterial infections. When detected the cell secretes an enzyme triggering a biochemical cascade that ultimately makes HOCl. This wonder substance then works very fast to break down the bacterial cell wall, killing it and eliminating the infection.
It's no surprise then that HOCl is up to 100 times more powerful than bleach and works within seconds of contact. Yet, because it's made within us, it doesn't cause any irritation. Even if accidentally ingested* making it safe to use around babies and pets.
ELECTROCHEMICAL ACTIVATION • Every bottle we make is made with high performance science that mimics HOCI made by the body.
We then bottle it up in UV protected packaging to preserve its quality. Our method is next to none. Unlike most HOCI products on the market, we guarantee stability that is compliant with Biocidal Products Regulation. Made using water and salt. Nothing else.
A DISINFECTANT THAT WORKS • You might be surprised to hear that some disinfectants take around 30 minutes to work. But they won't tell you that. The good news is our HOCI works on contact, kills 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses and doesn't need to be rinsed. It'll even deodorise your fabrics. It's non drying and non irritating on skin and lungs and won't pollute our air nor oceans.
*Disclaimer: do not ingest.
What does 'kills 99.9% bacteria' really mean?
Pick up a hand sanitiser and you're almost always guaranteed to read a claim such as "kills 99.9% bacteria". Sounds amazing right? Well, not when you start to break down the numbers.
Indulge us for a moment. Let's say Surface X contains 1 million bacteria.
Bacteria before sanitation
Bacteria after sanitation
Common Sanitisers that kill 99.9% bacteria
With a sanitiser claiming it kills 99.9% bacteria, 1000 out of the 1 million is still sitting on the surface you've just sprayed down. Consider that most disinfectants will take at least five minutes to achieve this and you realise the sanitiser isn't so powerful at disinfecting after all.
Luckily our Super Antibacterial Sanitising Water kills 99.9999% bacteria. By comparison, when sprayed on Surface X it leaves between 0-1 bacterium. All in under a minute.

STOP STRIPPING YOUR SKIN
...AND OVERPAYING FOR UNNECESSARY INGREDIENTS
There are a tonne of reasons to ditch alcohol hand sanitisers for Super Antibacterial Sanitising Water. The gels feel sticky and icky; the minimum 60% concentration strips skins delicate acid mantle increasing risk of dryness and irritation; and with a mix of added ingredients formulated to mask its smell and its harsh side effects, you end up paying far more than its value to disinfect.
